#Resist: Learning from the DREAMers

The April installment of the #Resist Film Series includes an excerpt of the powerful documentary Immigration Battle, and the poetic short film Dreams Awake, along with a stop-motion animation short from the Dreamer Generation web series. These films will set the stage to discuss the DREAM Act, its failure to pass in Congress, and explore how a group of young immigration activists forced the national conversation on policy reform forward resulting in Obama’s Executive Order known as DACA.

Filmmakers Michael Camerini, Shari Robertson, and William Caballero, along with Make the Road’s Yasmine Farhang and Jorge Lievanos will be present for a discussion following the program.

New York: April 7 at UnionDocs.
